Join us for a special Christmas Eve Torchlight Parade & Fireworks, the best show in Red River! Our Torchlight Parade & Fireworks on The Face is a deep rooted tradition that you and your family won't want to miss!
Location: The Lift House
It is a New Mexican Christmas tradition to place luminarias or farolitos (paper bags with sand and a lighted candle inside) around houses and along streets. It is also a tradition to place luminaries along a one-way three-kilometer loop at Enchanted Forest Cross Country Ski Area. Guests ski or snowshoe under the warm glow of candlelight and if it begins to snow the effect is just incredible. This is quite possibly the most beautiful holiday experience in North America! Join the Enchanted Forest crew on Christams Day for complimentary chile con queso, green chile stew, posole, desserts and hot drinks in the warming hut.
Guests and locals can find New Year’s Eve Celebrations for all ages beginning with the annual New Year's Eve Torchlight Parade and Fireworks Display at Red River Ski Area(The Face) at 7pm. Following the torchlight parade take the kids to the Red River Community House for an Old Fashioned New Year's Eve Party to enjoy pizza, music and games. A countdown ball drops at midnight Eastern time (10 p.m. in New Mexico) allowing even the youngest celebrants to ring in the new year before heading to bed!
Kids of all ages are also welcome at the annual New Year’s Eve Potluck at Enchanted Forest Cross Country Ski Area with lighted skiing and sledding at the base area.
Adults will enjoy ringing in the New Year at one of Red River’s local bars with live entertainment and, of course, champagne!
Race to the top of The Face at the Red River Ski & Summer Area! Contestants are timed and compete for cash prizes and bragging rights. Not into that much throttle? Grab a spot at the Lift House or on the snow to watch this fun (and loud) event!
Well, if you've ever wanted to spend a few days in the beautiful mountains of northern New Mexico, hanging out with some of your favorite songwriters, doing a little eating, drinking, and perhaps skiing... then this event is for you.
Firstly, tickets to this event will be extremely limited. We want the people who choose to attend the festival to feel like they've really been able to get to know the talented artists who will be taking part in this, our 8th Songwriters' Festival. We want it to feel intimate, and we want it to be special.
There will be solo shows, duo shows, and shows where each artist will be backed by a talented band. There will be late night informal jams, early afternoon ski runs, and who knows what else. Mostly, it will be three days of music, love, friendship, food, drink, and the celebration of music and song.
Tickets are onsale now! redriversongs.tix.com
Picture this: You’re cross country skiing or snowshoeing through a snowy forest when suddenly you come upon a group of people with chocolate on their faces licking their fingers and eating from a table laden with delectable goodies.
